Home Access Center Instructions

Home Access Center will allow you to check your student's report card, interim progress report, published class work, attendance, test scores and discipline file.  Or, you can use it to send their teachers a message.  This is an excellent resource to help you monitor if your student is keeping up with their work.  Please call the guidance office for a unique username and password.

 

Naviance

Naviance is a program that the students can use to research colleges, scholarships and careers.  They can also manage their college and financial aid applications, letters of recommendation, resume, etc.  This is a vital resource to help your child prepare for college and their future career.

 

Upward Bound

Our guests from LeMoyne's Upward Bound program will be at Huntington on January 26, 2016 to present their college preparatory program with our 8th grader students.  As usual, it promises to be an excellent presentation and many of the students will be excited about the possibility of being accepted to the program.  You can access their website with the link above.  The application deadline for students to hand in their applications to guidance is 3pm on TBD!!
